I recently received a commission to build a cherry hall table for a local broker. He'll use it to hold a mid sized flat screen in his front office. This is the reason I purchased the Freud rip blade! And, as you can see in the first pic, 8/4 cherry was no match for the blade. I'm very happy with it.
This is a low budget job (for me, at least) so I'm afraid I was not as particular in my choice of woods as I could have been. This cherry (not from MI ) has a few minor defects, but overall I think it will turn out fine.
I did the first dry assemble this evening (I only started this yesterday afternoon - watch out Allen, I'm comin' for ya!) Working from 'altered' plans from both WWJ and WS magazines.

Still much to do. I have to trim the top to size and taper the edges - then build the drawer. More pics to come.
